Kinichná

Kinichná
Kinichná means "House of the sun" is a fairly old city built in the time frame of 200-600 A.D.
The principal building at Kinichná is the Acropolis, a splendidly proportioned structure; it soars above the plain dwarfing the smaller buildings and terrace that surround it.

Kinichná is actually an outlying part of Dzibanché (three kilometers separate them so you can plan on seeing all in the same day) and its temples resemble those of the core site in terms of its fine stone carvings and architectural style.

While Kinichná is small, its largest temple is huge and it's possible to climb it; from its top you can see a good example of a Mayan Arch and admire a beautiful landscape.
